Yesterday was FINALLY the last day of school here in my part of Alberta, Canada. I know many of you have already been out for awhile but here we go till the end of June and take July and August off. So we are done and I am fried and my house is a wreck. The month of June was so busy that I had to let things slide in the house a little bit. I felt like I went into survival mode to get through each day and what remains as a result is a whole lot of clutter and a massive amount of dust bunnies. Oh and let’s not forget the paper piles. All the paper that comes home from school at the end of the year is ready to bury me alive. BUT I will win this battle. Oh yes I will because, before any member of my family gets to relax and start the lazy days of summer, I am declaring TODAY take back the house day.
Oh yes I am.
As you can imagine my kids think this is a great idea. Ha!
I’d rather do one hard day of clutter control and clean up than let everything fester in my mind of what needs to be done while trying to do little bits here and there throughout the summer. No thanks.
Let’s get it done and then we can RELAX!
And take a delicious nap…or two.
One hard day for many days of fun without a care in the world.
It can be done.
We’ve already done a deep clean of the rec room and rearranged some things in there to freshen the space up. Next are the kid’s bedrooms.
Later tonight, after we’ve carefully gone through the school paper piles and selected our favorites to keep, we will have a big fire in the pit in our backyard to burn all the rest.
I can’t wait, it’s going to be great because once the day is done we’ll truly be ready to enjoy the next two months of summer. Woohoo!!
Do you need to declare a take back the house day?
Care to join me?
